    Where do you buy your number plates?

    Ive used 2 companies online to make me a number plate over the past year but both have been shocking. The first set faded within weeks and the second set are bubbling massively.

    I am only after a set of standard number plates with GB and euro logo and a custom piece of writing below the characters.

    Any links would be great :-)

    Must have producers name and postcode, the plate must also have the BS number also.

    You are not allowed graphics, logos or embelems on the plate.

    You see a lot of dealers now doing a plate with a lipped bottom edge displaying their logo and details as its not on the plate area.
    Its very close to being illegal and "not in sprit of the law"
